Hello my name is Amber. I adopted a 4 1/2 year old male bearded dragon named buddy. In his entire life he was only given insects and calcium/D3 but no vegitation/fruit/herbs. I adopted him 3 weeks ago he has the entire proper set up lights/vitamins/calcium/d3/calcium. We seen a vet 3 days ago and they were super vague on what to do and also said she is super surprised he is still alive and living this long. General health good. The vet did not give us any vitamin A supplements or vitamin A injections. I wish she was a bit more into my situation it cost me $95 CAD for the visit and critical care, she also didn't see us on time at all and the appointment at the most lasted 30 mins. She also gave us an info sheets on dragons but from what I read it's mostly seems about dragon as that actually live in Australia outdoors and a lot of the information seemed totally wrong on the sheet it said last updated jam/2014. The main mistakes I saw on it was basking temp no higher then 100 and that adult dragons eat only 20% vegetation and 80% insects which seems very wrong due to everywhere else says the exact opposite. Anyways... I am currently giving him critical care twice daily once by oral syringe In Morning and once in evening, in the morning he also gets 3-5 worms and at night 2-3 worms. His worms consist of superworms and hornworm every second day. I am offering him the best staples and fruits every morning but he will not take them and yes I have tried every trick can't tell me one I haven't thought of or tried lol. He has a bath every 4-7 days and misted twice a day and offered water in his terrium 24/7. He will barely drink water but the vet said he has no signs of dehydration. Today I am starting to blend up the vegetation/fruits and syringing him anywhere from 30-20ml morning and evening. And I will always always like I have been setting out fresh vegetation all day and playing with him and it to try and get him to take at least one bite, so far no luck. Buddy was never given a chance to build up a appetite for vegetation it's very unfortunate. I'm here to see if there is any other advice I can do to help him become not vitamin A deficient. I am absolutely in love with the dragon I'm hoping I can give him the best rest of his life and a health one also. So yes any advice on what some have done to help a dragon with vitamin a deficiency will be awesome. Prognosis? Tips? Tricks? ANYTHING LOL Will saline drops help the swelling a bit? If yes how do I administer it to the eyes? I have saline bullets due to my son being disabled with a tracheostomy and gtube. PS Buddy was only diagnosed with this deficiency because of the vet hearing he has never had any multivitamins or vegetation also his huge swollen eyes. Here is some pics of my handsome boy.
